Each November educators across the country teach their
students about the First Thanksgiving, a quintessentially
American holiday. They try to give students an accurate
picture of what happened in Plymouth in 1621 and explain how
that event fits into American history. Unfortunately, many teaching
materials give an incomplete, if not inaccurate, portrayal of the first
Thanksgiving, particularly of the event’s Native American
participants.
